Have you ever receive the incredibly unhelpful HTTP Error while trying to upload an image to your WordPress media library? If you have and called tech support, was the issue easily solved?
I purchased a new computer and imported my browser settings into Chrome. While working on a new WordPress website, I found the staging site I just created incredibly slow. Then I started getting HTTP Errors when uploading an image no matter the size, .jpg or .png. Calls to tech support over several days did not resolve the issue, though support truly tried.
During this process I sent an email to my IT specialist at API Technology and he suggested I make the webhost’s website a Trusted Site with Chrome. I did make this webhost a trusted site and the issue was resolved. I thought I’d post the info here in case it is helpful to someone else.
Creating a Trusted Site in Chrome
If you need to create a Trusted Site in Chrome, here are the steps:
- Click the Chrome Menu icon on the far right of the Address bar (icon of three short horizontal lines).
- Click on Settings, scroll to the bottom and click the Show Advanced Settings link.
- Click on Change proxy settings (under Network)
- Click the Security tab > Trusted Sites icon, then click Sites.
- Enter the URL of your Trusted Site, then click Add.
- Click Close > OK.
I hope you never come across the HTTP error, but if you do, I hope this helps you out!
